I run an online radio station. On Saturday from 5pm to 7pm we take requests via a form on our website. When a request is submitted it automatically goes into a cue. I am trying to either disable that script to a certain time, or put the script on a separate page, but only give access during specified time.. any ideas, suggestions?
